$274.4 million increase in direct operating expenses attributable to revenue growth, including higher than optimal DVD product costs related to purchases of December 2010 and January 2011 titles, as well as increased video game product costs in support of our national rollout in June 2011, increased revenue share and payment card processing fees directly attributable to the revenue growth and increased kiosk field operations expenses due to the growth in the installed kiosk base.

We performed the annual goodwill impairment test based on the two-step process described above as of November 30, 2012.

As the estimated fair value of each reporting unit substantially exceeded its respective carrying value there was no goodwill impairment in 2012.
